Heloise's Olive Nut Spread

Anyone who likes green olives will love this appetizer!  

The combination of olives, pecans and cream cheese makes it a tasty treat.  I’ve used this recipe many times and it always gets rave reviews.  

There is no limit as to what you can serve this spread with:  crackers, vegetables, crusty bread, bagels or as a sandwich spread.  It’s quick, easy, has a great appearance and is a crowd pleaser!  


Heloise's Olive Nut Spread


8 ounces cream cheese, softened
½ cup mayonnaise
½ cup chopped pecans
1 cup salad olives, drained
½ to 1 teaspoon McCormick Seasoned Pepper


Mash cream cheese with a fork.  
Add mayonnaise, mix well.  
Stir in pecans and olives and pepper, mix well.  
Chill for at least 2 hours.  
It will be mushy when first made but, will spread well after being chilled.
Serve on crackers.

By the way, it also makes a good sandwich filling!
